The Agri-Mek standard schedule was one weekly application for 2 wk, wait 21 days and one weekly application for 2 wk resulting in a total of four applications.

The treatment dates were 3, 10, 17, and 24 Feb and 3 and 10 Mar, 1999. The experiment was conducted in four replications in a RCB design on plastic mulch beds with 4 ft bed spacing. Each plot consisted of 20 plants in two 10-plant rows per bed. Treatments were applied using a hand-held sprayer with a spray wand outfitted with a nozzle containing a 45° core and a number 4 disc that was pressurized by compressed CO operating to 60 psi and calibrated to deliver 100 gpa. Ten randomly selected leaflets/plot were collected from the middle one-third stratum of the plants, prior to weekly applications. Mites were brushed onto rotating sticky disks. Mite motile forms were counted on 1/10th of the disk surface to estimate an average number of mites/leaflet. Data were transformed √ (x + 0.5) prior to ANOVA and means were separated by LSD (P = 0.05). Data were retransformed to the original scale for reporting. TD2383-01, TD2383-01 followed by Agri-Mek, and TD2383-01 followed by Brigade provided excellent control of TSSM but control was not significantly different from that of Agri-Mek alone.
